Sullivan’s Estate and Auction Company was opened in Weaverville by Grant, Justin and Travis in the fall of 2019. They are now celebrating their first year in business this October.
Sullivan’s offers full estate service including estate buyouts, cleanups and on-site sales. The higher end items from buyouts go to their storefront on Nugget Lane. Other items are sold at onsite sales or donated to groups or folks in the community based on need. Their goal is to provide services to locals and offer quality items at affordable prices.
Sullivan’s also buys and sells gold, silver and other precious metals, as well as other high-end items, such as one-of-a-kind jewelry, name brand luxury items and vintage clothing. It’s a very eclectic collection, with every buyout bringing one of a kind treasures to the store.
With COVID-19, business slowed way down, due to people’s fears of exposures and the mandated closures. It was a challenging time. Their only strategy was to keep moving forward. Business and sales have picked up in the past few months since reopening in June.
A unique service they have is moving large items such as vehicles, boats, you name it. They recently moved 50-plus-year-old lime trees that were in five by five boxes from an estate in Shasta County, “It was really quite an accomplishment” said Grant.
Right now Sullivan’s has eight buyouts in storage. Grant says “Our success comes from our community, and I really appreciate all of our customers and the help from Karen Stevens and Les Pearson to make this happen.”
Sullivan’s uses standard COVID precautions of masks, distancing and sanitizer. Sullivan’s is open 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday at 50 Nugget Lane, Weaverville. Call 623-3228.
